This section of the proceedings of the 15th IAPH Conference provides a transcript of the second working session of the conference and is comprised of two main presentations. The first, "Competition and Coordination among Ports," discusses competition among ports within the framework of port marketing. It also calls for close cooperation among ports of a range because they service the same conferences and those shipping lines communicate with each other. The second, "Community Affairs, Preservation of the Environment," concerns the Port of Montreal, which is in the paradoxical situation of being a major seaport despite its being located 1,600 km from the Atlantic Ocean. The developments that have shaped the port's history are reviewed. The public with which the port must deal is divided into several subcommunities. The mechanisms for ensuring that these are consulted and involved as the port continues reshaping its immediate environment through its ongoing growth are discussed. The questions and comments of other session participants follow the transcripts of the two speeches.
